Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Representation ID: 24677

Received: 16/10/2017

Respondent: Alice Martin

Representation:

Community growing spaces should be encouraged. This could go further than simply allotments, but herb beds could be located along district centres and in some brownfield sites where volunteers could grow food for the community. Where appropriate landscaping schemes could include fruit baring trees which again could be eaten by the wider community. This would improve community spirit bringing people together.

Ipswich has a rich history; it has some of the finest buildings in the country and I am not referring to some of the so called high spec buildings built since the 60s. It's time to shout about our history and build on it. We are not a London over spill. Suffolk is built on hard work and graft it is not based on pie in the sky. The town should serve the county. It would be great to see both the council and the county council work together to keep Ipswich together.

Received: 27/10/2017

Respondent: Historic England

Representation:

Protection of the historic environment should be fully taken into account at all stages and levels of the local planning process. We have produced a number of detailed Good Practice Advice and Advice Note documents. We recommend that you review them as part of your local plan development, alongside our Conservation Principles. In preparation of the forthcoming local plan, we encourage you to draw on the knowledge of local conservation officers, the county archaeologist and local heritage groups. Absence of a comment on an allocation or document in this letter does not mean that Historic England is content with it.

Respondent: NHS England

Number of people: 2

Representation:

NHS England and the CCG will have further comments to make as details of specific developments become available. In order to provide a more detailed response, a clearer understanding of phasing and anticipated trajectory will be required.
Increase in the provision of assisted living developments and residential care homes, although a necessary feature of care provision and to be welcomed, can pose significant impacts on local primary care provision and it is important that planners and developers engage at a very early stage with the NHS, to plan and implement suitable mitigations.
It is also important we continue to be consulted in relation to emerging Neighbourhood Plans in order to work with local communities to deliver and maintain sustainable healthcare.

Representation ID: 24985

Received: 13/10/2017

Respondent: Theatres Trust

Representation:

Local plans should support arts and culture at all levels to support the local economy and ensure that all residents and visitors, and future generations, have access to cultural opportunities. Policies should protect, support and enhance cultural facilities and activities and promote cultural led development as a catalyst for wider regeneration in town centres.

Respondent: Suffolk Chamber of Commerce

Representation:

Planning processes and decisions should be supportive of private sector investment and job creation and must be undertaken in a timely manner across all of the topic areas with clear timetables and dedicated support for those businesses new to the planning process or unable to buy in specialist support.

Representation ID: 25180

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation:

No mention is made of the Ipswich Tidal Flood Barrier and associated flood defences or to foul drainage capacity in Ipswich. Both topics are raised in the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report and should also be included here. If a Community Infrastructure Levy is to be adopted, we would welcome contributions towards flood risk infrastructure such as the future maintenance of the tidal barrier and existing tidal and fluvial defences. Also, the River Gipping and Orwell Estuary are overlooked in the plan. The Gipping is a neglected asset. Include proposals to enhance its visual and ecological quality and maintain water quality.

Respondent: Ipswich Limited

I would strongly welcome the borough council to explore adding such flexibility into planning policy. The borough council needs to work with landowners and developers, rather than alienate them.
The council needs to inject confidence into the Princes Street office corridor area by building the third office block.

Respondent: Suffolk County Council

Representation:

Minerals and Waste issues are not a natural fit under any of the headings provided. However, they are of relevance to the development of the Plan. IBC will be aware that the County Council is currently developing a new Minerals and Waste Local Plan for Suffolk. Ipswich Borough Council will need to be most aware of the safeguarding policies designed to protect the use of waste sites and the use of various kinds of minerals sites as well as minerals resources. See full comments for relevant draft policies.

Respondent: Ipswich Community Media CIC

Representation:

We want the arts, creativity and real grass roots opportunities. We would like to see equal chances to access the arts - as 100% of our young people are not attending any of the Wolsey young theatre groups - but have got seismic skills. Dance east are being fantastic at supporting us now - and we are all seeing the benefits, including community cohesion.

IBC needs to cover a bigger area i.e. you have a number 4 bus from the town centre to Martlesham Heath. You need to have Kesgrave and Martlesham Heath areas as part of IBC.
